Ilya Samsonov Gets Shut Out, Ovi Doesn’t Get Cobra Kai Head Band

Even though Alex Ovechkin scored two goals in Friday’s 4-0 win against the Devils, he wasn’t given the Cobra Kai headband of the game. Instead, Tom Wilson, who had two assists, got the headband from Dmitry Orlov, the previous winner. We think this is okay because Ovi is so good that he’s expected to play as well as he does.

The Miagi-Do headband went to Ilya Samsonov, who had a 19-save shutout, the second of his career – his first was in Jan. of 2020 – and first of the season. See the video below and be sure to keep track of our running list of the Caps’ Cobra Kai headband winners.
